When will the video game industry understand that sometimes we just need to pause a cutscene? Story-focused games have had amazing developments in the last decade, yet it's still an incredibly rare feature.

 
 
 

A few days ago I was at a bar and one barman told the other he was going to buy Fifa cards that night hoping to get good players. It got me thinking that while we complain about microtransactions there are people that consider them fun.

 
 
 

I just ordered my new PC! I am very excited to finally catch up with all the modern stuff you guys have been playing in the last 5 years or so (Quantum Break, Witcher 3, Final Fantasy XV, Street Fighter V, GTA V, X-Com 2)!

 
 
 

Is there a place where you can find decently-written synopses of video game plots? Wikipedia is not always reliable...

 
 
 

After seeing the archived Miiverse posts I'm starting to think that closing it was a good idea. https://archiverse.guide/posts

 
 
 

Doki Doki Literature Club is, very surprisingly, my GOTY.

 
 
 

'Toiders! I need suggestions for a gift! I have to come up with something for an 8-year-old girl. She owns a PS4 and a 3DS. She often comes at my place to play GTA IV. Would it be foolish to buy her Watch Dogs 2?

 
 
 

Guys, I'm about to build a new gaming PC for myself. I see that most games have an i7 under the recommended settings, yet multiple people tell me that a cheaper Ryzen 5 1600X will perfectly do. What's your opinion?

 
 
 

Company of Heroes is temporarily free on Humble Store... Get it and go shoot'em Nazis :)

 
 
 

You: "There are only three single player Witcher games." Me, an intellectual:



 
 
 

The Witcher, Call of Juarez, Pathologic, S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Mafia, Kingdom Come... There must be something about growing up beyond the iron curtain that turns you into an amazing game developer.

 
 
 

Have you ever heard of that artist that cut off his ear and sold it to buy PC games from a well-known store? He was called Van GOG.

 
 
 

Last time I refreshed, the "fap" word was replaced by ܞ, which apparently is the Syriac letter yudh. #Learningwithdestructoid (Hi JC)


 
 
 

The old CRT TV I hooked my SNES to makes a "pop" sound and turns off, so I tried it on a couple HDTVs and they receive a signal, but show no picture. This happens both with an RGB cable + SCART adapter and with a native SCART. Any suggestion?

 
 
 

I'm adding the G-Man's first HL2 monologue to my phone's alarm. I have been thinking about that for a while.

 
 
 

My roommates decided the Wii U is too big to stay in the living room :(

 
 
 

I started my second playthrough of The Witcher 1. I don't care how clunky it feels, I love it for the atmosphere and the plot. And the battle system, while simplistic, does its job.

 
 
 

https://www.humblebundle.com/store Make sure you get the only good TWD game for free :)

 
 
 

Pathologic is back! I suppose I should get around to finishing the first one, though. http://ice-pick.com/en/pathologic2-2/

 
 
 

My little cousin came to my room, took my SS Zelda action figure, made her beat up OoT Zelda, then put her into a 40's car with her boyfriend Mr. Bean (and OoT Zelda fainted/dead on the backseat) and made them drive off.

 
 
 

GOG code for Alan Wake's American Nightmare in the comments ;)

 
 
 

Just ordered a Steam Link I never knew I wanted. I am a filthy impulse buyer :(

 
 
 

Did they REALLY go for that name? Just... Wow.

 
 
 

PC is better than consoles because it's hard to get 60 FPS on a console, while on PC you can get hundreds of FPS from the early 90's to today. CHECKMATE PEASANTS.

 
 
 

Me and a couple friends legit passed like 20 minutes watching the tide slowly rise a few days ago. I was wondering... Are you aware of any game where tide is a mechanic? It would be pretty cool in an open-world game
